Clean the kumquats under water.
Place the kumquats into a medium saucepan and cover with water. Bring to the boil and simmer for 2 minutes. Remove the fruit from the pan and drain. Discard the water.

Reduce to a simmer and add the kumquats to the pan. Cook for 30 minutes.

Top with the cooking liquid strained through a fine sieve, removing the solids, and covering the fruit.
